Aaron Freeman, aka Gene Ween (co-founder of alternative rock group Ween) recently confirmed
with Rolling Stone magazine that he has decided to call it quits and to retire his alter-ego
Gene Ween. When asked if Ween was coming to and end, he said "Pretty much, yeah... it's been
a long time, 25 years. It was a good run."
Freeman also stated "For me it's a closed book. In life sometimes, in the universe, you have
to close some doors to have others open. There's no, 'Goddamn that such and such!' For me,
I'd like to think it's a door I can close finally."

I thought they were already retired... go figure.
Damn. I was just now listening to them now and had no idea. That sucks though, they are/were a fantastic band
early stuff ruled...here's a pre-emptive fuck you to all ween haters
no more homo rainbow
Fuck, man. Fuck.
i love that song they did on spongebob way back its genius
Digging: Mary J Blige - The Breakthrough
No more Poop Ship Destroyer.
but yeah this sucks, i've only heard the mollusk but it's awesome
band is awesome
I was hoping they'd have it in them for one more album, oh well though. 25 years is impressive for a group like Ween
Digging: Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
The Mollusk was great, it's a shame.
It is a sad day...
lol oh no Snide
Digging: Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city

Ween were fantastic but La Cucaracha was crap.
yeah that was phoned in
they've been so quiet I thought they already were broken up. Regardless, RIP.
Digging: Neil Davidge - Halo 4 Original Soundtrack
Glad I got to see them at Lollapalooza last year.
I can't even describe how much sad this fills me with.
for sec i thought it said weezer and i was happy
aw man i can't read and ween is retiring god damn this sucks.
What a shame.
this is depressing.
No joke, my cousin played some keyboards for this band. I know he did tours and gigs, don't know if he ever recorded with them though
man this sucks... hopefully theyll have a reunion in ten years.
I will play "Bananas and Blow" all day in their honor.
